Why wouldn't he stay faithful to me, then? That would have been the best thing for our children - two parents in one home, lovingly committed to each other and God. I don't know why it hurt so much to hear him say this, but it did. Somehow he gets to come out smelling like a rose, the hero in his mind to our children. It reminds me that I do care for him, that I am still grieving.
Thankfully, the sadness didn't send me into dispair and after an early night, I woke with renewed energy and a positive outlook.
